    This is beautiful! I have made a few corsets the old fashion way, but this seams like an easier approach. What brand grommets are you using? That is the only thing I have yet to be able to perfect. I have tried a few brands and they have turned out to be junk. Any suggestions?

    It took me forever to get the patterns right, but now it’s as easy as anything but pie. I no longer have the instructions on paper, but basically you need duct tape, I usually buy two rolls, just in case, saran wrap, and a friend you don’t mind seeing you with your shirt off and trust with a pair of scissors. I usually keep my bra on, so you get more lift from the corset, and have your friend help wrap you with the saran wrap, usually arms up as long as you can. Wrap well past the area you want the duct tape to end, for obvious reasons. Then start wrapping duct tape around your waste, as tight as you want it, then I usually put strips going lengthwise around the entire thing, and continue to wrap the bottom. The boob area I use small strips around the whole thing, like flower petals. And continue to wrap the rest. Using a Sharp-e marker, mark on the panels, and the front and back centers. I usually do two patterns with one wrapping, one on either side.

    That’s pretty, and the idea with the duct tape and saran wrap sounds good!
